a nice and simple but cute pillow to make
I saw a pic online somewhere (maybe on ebay) and wanted one! so of course I decided to make one, it turned out very well I think. you can make it as big or as small as you want.

Super cute! Now I can't help wondering what a couch full of tulle wrapped candie plush pillows would look.

that is very cute idea! Though I don't think the tulle would be all that comfortable to put your head on, but for a certain look it would look amazing in.. I think I still want to try making one of these days though.. If I ever get through my long list of stuff I want to try and make.. it keeps piling on but not getting to making them has been a bit detrimental.. Ah well I bet I am not the only crafty person who has this problem!

actually, if you use softer tulle (not the stiff stuff) you can hardly tell its there. but that's true. and I know exactly what you mean with the craft list thing. I have a couple notebooks filled with projects and ideas XD

I didn't realize that there was softer tulle, the only kind I have ever been able to find is always the harder stuff... Maybe I am just unlucky and the stores here don't carry it?

I totally undertand Penny! I cant get out in my small town even if we did have a Michaels too!! Im just outside of Acton ON and I know your town well: shes not kidding when she says they just dont have a place with the softer stuffing LOL. Sorry dont mean to laugh. Penny, I do alot of my shopping ON LINE with a reloadable VISA specifically for that reason. Can you google closest store that ships to your area with the right type maybe? Just a friendly suggestion.

Eventually I will figure out something.. right now just going to save my money for now..
